Canadian Online Parts

Does anyone have Canadian online Versys bike accessory stores they can recommend. Looking to buy Givi, barkbusters, sw-motech parts. The dollar exchange, shipping and customs make orders out of the US expensive...

Any help with some websites to try would be greatly appreciated.

You can go to www.givi.ca (Thibault) to put together your shopping list to take to a dealer. I don't know of a Motech source in Canada. Twisted Throttle lists some Canadian dealers as distributors but the outfit they list in Calgary never got back to me and I'm not the type who feels I should keep bugging somebody just to do business with them.

If ordering SW-Motech from Twisted Throttle, make sure you specify 'Global Express Mail' (USPS) instead of UPS to avoid being robbed for brokerage fees.
Adventure MotoStuff ships via USPS (Postal Service), and you can get a reasonable instant shipping quote on the order before finalizing it. I can order a front Avon Distanzia and rear Conti TrailAttack tires, a Ventura light guard, and a Fenda Extenda (for a buddy with a BMW, as I already have mine), all for $69.45 USPS shipping to northern Ontario. I can wait till March in case the Canadian $ picks up more, but I'll still save hundreds if it doesn't. I already got H&B crash bars, Happy Trails skidplate, and a Fenda Extenda from them at par. They also sell Givi stuff and more...
